Travel Diary: La La Land

I just LOVE me some California! You can go anytime of year and have an amazing time. I am in love with the San Francisco Bay Area, but I have a thing for sun and palm trees. LA LA Land is the spot for just that! I have visited L.A. a few times, and each time I have a different experience. I like to sightsee when I travel. Each place I visit has something cool and different to offer.

LENT 2017:Spiritual Recharge

Today is the first day of the Lent season! I have really been looking forward to it this year. As some of you may know, I was baptized in November. It was one of the most amazing experiences and decisions I have ever made! I am so happy I made it official to become a follower of Christ. I was actually baptized as a baby when I “was” Catholic, but that is another story for later ;-).

Lent is a time when I RECHARGE and refocus on my relationship with God, myself and others. It is a time when I figure out what I not only want to give up during Lent and after, but also, what I want to gain. Since being baptized, there have been some interesting experiences happening. God didn’t say once you are baptized your life will be perfect. It is the total opposite. But that is where the faith you may not have had before really starts to kick in. You have faith in God’s plan for your life and not so much of your own. HA! God’s plan will leave our plans in the dust, if only we really TRUST him.  It is hard and no walk in the park. Take a moment to think about when things really got tough, and now, look at where you are. See, God’s got you.

Black History Continues….

It never ends. We, as African-Americans, have to continue to educate ourselves and others on OUR history, struggles, and triumphs. We have to know our own history in order to teach our children, so they can keep it going!


We have overcome so many tragedies and obstacles, but we continue to rise! This is evident in education, business, media, science and politics.  And the list goes on and on. It all starts with a conversation in an effort to end ignorance.

Special K Parfait!

IMG_5273

I am always on the go. I’m not a morning person, so it is hard for me to get up, let alone have time for breakfast.

So to save time and money, I started making my own fruit and yogurt parfaits! I make it at night and put it in the fridge. Then, in the morning, I can grab it and go! Plus, isn’t using a mason jar just the cutest thing!

All I did was cut into halves 4 strawberries (2 for each layer), add 1 tablespoon of blueberries for each layer, pour in my favorite yogurt, and add some Special K cereal on top. YUM!

Of course you can also add your favorite ingredients. Have fun with it. ENJOY
